Summer Fun for All!
We offer a wide variety of summer programs in both music and theatre, for all ages. Please read more below for all the details and to register.
Mixed Age Move and Groove – ages 1-4
Mixed Age Move & Groove
Our Mixed Age class for ages 1-4 uses dance, song, & play to learn about music and even the piano, and we’re setting the ideal stage. Using the MusikGarten curriculum, we give each child and their adult partner the opportunity to happily sing, move, and learn beginner music concepts together in a caring learning environment. Books and songs will be shared with each child while they interact and play music with their classmates. In addition to teaching music, our classes focus on the development of fine and gross motor skills, positive social skills, and identification of letters, numbers, and colors.
SUMMER UPDATE: We may not be able to meet in person but we still want to sing and dance with you!
Our youngest musicians from ages 1-4, with a parent/caregiver are invited to join us for joyful music this summer!

Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties – that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning ten—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course, things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh . . . becomes the big OH-NO!?

The Drowsy Chaperone – grades 8-12
Updated information coming soon…
Grades 8-12 Musical Theater
The Drowsy Chaperone (Title subject to licensing)
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
Monday – Friday, August 3 – 14
8:30am – 2:00pm
Performance: Friday August 14, 7:00pm at Grafton High School
Teachers: Lisa Scarlett, Kayla Cardin

Out of the Shower Workshop: A Vocal Technique Crash Course
Description: In this three hour group workshop, singers will learn the basics of healthy singing technique. Students will learn about anatomy of the respiratory and vocal tracts, efficient breathing techniques, balanced tone production, vocal registers, and vocal health.
This clinic is ideal for singers in theatre programs; community, school, or church choirs; bands of any style; or anyone who would simply like to improve their singing voice. Informational handouts will be provided and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and practice the skills learned.
